VVS Laxman and Suresh Raina rescued India from an early slump but the visitors were still bowled out for 201 by West Indies in their first innings on the opening day of the second Test here. Score | PhotosIn reply, West Indies were 30 for three at stumps, trailing India by 171 runs at the Kensington Oval here on Tuesday.Ramnaresh Sarwan was batting on 10, while night watchman Devendra Bishoo had just joined him at the crease before the end of day’s proceeding here.Earlier, India were left struggling at 38 for four, courtesy pacer Ravi Rampaul’s three-wicket haul in the pre-lunch session but Laxman and Raina added 117 runs for the fifth wicket to bring the visitors back into the game.Laxman dropped the anchor initially and along with Raina started dominating the bowlers in the afternoon session but West Indies bounced back after tea with Fidel Edwards and Devendra Bishoo taking three wickets each.If Rampaul (3 for 38) was incisive in the first session, Edwards (3 for 56) and Bishoo (3 for 46) were lethal in the final session as India lost their final five wickets for just 34 runs.India did manage to get colour back on their cheeks with three strikes of their own — openers Adrian Barath (3) and Lendl Simmons (2) departed with only five runs on board and left-hander Darren Bravo (9) left with just a delivery remaining for the day’s play.All three Indian seamers — Ishant Sharma, Praveen Kumar and Abhimanyu Mithun — picked up a wicket each as West Indies ended the day on 30 for 3.advertisementNothing went right for India as the visitors, for the third straight time in the series, made a score of 200 or thereabout which conveyed as much about the frailty of India’s batting as it did about the potency of the home attack.Opener Abhinav Mukund (1) was out to a rising delivery from Rampaul in the second over of the morning which the opener could only lob into the hands of the gully fielder.It followed a run-barren session for the visitors and only thing happening was the fall of wickets.The first Test hero Rahul Dravid (5) was surprised by a Darren Sammy delivery which rose from a length and hard as the batsman tried, it still took the top of his blade to go to second slip.Opener Murali Vijay (11) tried hard to take roots in the middle but his tendency to waft his bat on the legside cost him his wicket. His bat followed a legside delivery of Rampaul and edged a catch to wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh.It was Rampaul’s first over of his second spell and he made it a twin strike when an unsure Virat Kohli (0) could only send a ball off the edge of his bat to slips. Rampaul had an awesome figure of 8-5-4-3 in the pre-lunch session.So slow and painful was India’s progress that the opening session yielded only 44 runs and as many as four wickets were lost.India looked a transformed side in the post-lunch session as they added an unfinished 103 runs for the fifth wicket.Both batsmen hit half centuries and looked good for many more as they put the host attack to sword with brilliant counter-attacking batting.But West Indies were fortunate to get a breakthrough in the final session when umpire Asad Rauf ruled Raina out at forward short leg off leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo after the ball had ricocheted off the batsman’s pads.A distraught Raina yelled out in anguish and then dropped his bat before dejectedly walking back to the pavilion. Raina batted for 137 minutes and hit seven fours from 105 balls for his 53 runs.Raina’s departure gave the hosts the breakthrough they had so desperately wanted and the Indian innings subsided quickly from then on.Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni failed for the third time in the series when he holed Edwards out to mid-on fielder.Harbhajan Singh (5) awkwardly defended at an Edwards bouncer and presented forward short leg with a chance.The biggest blow to India was delivered by Bishoo who drew Laxman to punch one which rose and spun sharper than the batsman had bargained for.Laxman’s gutsy innings of 85 took him 253 minutes and he hit 12 fours from the 146 balls he faced.The tail subsided without any fight and presented West Indies with their best day of the series so far.However, India pulled things back during the West Indies, taking three host wickets cheaply.Barath fell to a catch in the slips off impressive Ishant Sharma, while his partner Praveen Kumar got the other opener Lendl Simmons to a catch to wicketkeeper. Mithun then got into the act and dismissed Bravo in his second over.advertisement- With inputs from PTI
cricket June 18, 2017 SHARE SHARE EMAIL The World Twenty20 Championship’s seventh edition next year is all set to be scrapped and pushed to 2020 as the top member nations will be busy with bilateral commitments in 2018.According to highly-placed sources in the International Cricket Council, the next edition of ICC World T20 will only be held in 2020. However, the venue is yet to be decided.“Yes, it is true that we are skipping with World T20 edition in 2018. Look, no venue was decided. The primary reason is there are too many bilateral series happening between member nations. It was not possible to schedule the tournament in 2018,” an influential ICC source told PTI about the development.However, in all likelihood the tournament will be returning in 2020.“Yes, the tournament will return in 2020. It could be South Africa or Australia. The other reason apart from the bilateral series was that with too many ICC events on the anvil, the member nations were also of the view that it needed to be spaced out,” the source said.The previous ICC World T20s have been held in South Africa (2007), England (2009), West Indies (2010), Sri Lanka (2012), Bangladesh (2014), and India (2016).It was also clear that with almost all the member boards having their own franchise-based T20 leagues, the World T20 despite its popularity, won’t lose out on anything. The other reason is bilateral series being a money spinner for all nations with major riches coming through broadcast deals.Especially, if India tours any nation, the host member board earns millions of dollars through TV broadcast rights. Would it not be a setback for ICC if World T20 is not held? The source said: “Not at all. There are enough T20 leagues and the fans will have a lot to look forward to.”The Indian team is set to be on the road for the better part of next year starting with South Africa tour, followed by away series against England and Australia, respectively.As of now, the next Champions Trophy scheduled in 2021 in India is still on. The main focus for the upcoming ICC annual conference starting here from tomorrow will be getting the long-standing proposal for the World Test Championship.ICC has long planned at least one world event across all formats. It is also learnt that BCCI may request an increase in their share from the now proposed $390 million but member boards are unlikely to give in to their demands if they consider them unreasonable. t20 t20 COMMENT Published on × SHARE Primary reason for the delay is top member nations will be busy with bilateral meetings COMMENTS

Rabat – The UN Security Council has announced its Provisional Programme of Work of Security Council for January 2019.In its agenda, the Security Council is dedicating January to consulting on peacekeeping missions in the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.The Western Sahara conflict is on the agenda, with the consultation on MINURSO due to take place on January 29.In December, the Security Council Report announced that the UN Secretary-General’s personal envoy, Horst Kohler, would brief the Security Council on the conflict and MINURSO in January. The consultation agenda targeting UN missions follows US National Security Advisor John Bolton’s remarks addressing what he perceives to be unnecessary UN missions that fail to end stalled conflicts.Regarding MINURSO, Bolton expressed frustration that 27 years after its creation, the body has proven “ineffective” and has not ended the conflict over the region.Read Also: Kohler to Brief Security Council on Western Sahara, MINURSO in JanuaryIn addition to MINURSO, the 15 members of the Security Council will also consult on MONUSCO operating in the Republic of Congo, UNOWAS in West Africa and, UNFICYP in Cyprus.In December at the Heritage Foundation, Trump’s national security advisor discussed the US’s financial contributions to the UN missions in African conflict zones.“The United States will no longer provide indiscriminate assistance across the entire continent, without focus or prioritization,” Bolton said.He added that his country will “not tolerate this longstanding pattern of aid without effect, assistance without accountability, and relief without reform.”US Representative for UN Management and Reform Ambassador Cherith Norman Chalet echoed Bolton’s remarks.“Unfortunately in a deeply dissatisfying and disappointing turn of events, every country decided reform was good and right for the UN, but not for how it is financed,” she said.The US is a top contributor to the UN budget, providing $10 billion annually.

Responding to the publication today of the government’s Consumer Landscape Review, Motor Codes, the provider of OFT-approved codes of practice for the car industry, welcomes the announcement that the government-backed self-regulatory model is set to continue as a key means of delivering consumer protection.Changes proposed in the review include:Trading Standards Institute (TSI) to establish successor to Consumer Code Approval Scheme (CCAS) from April 2013.Creation of National Trading Standards Board (NTSB) to deliver strengthened enforcement of consumer protection and combat rogue traders.Creation of Competition and Markets Authority as a successor to The Office of Fair Trading and Competition Commission.Citizens Advice to take on OFT’s responsibility for delivering consumer information and advice.Consultation on the future of voluntary consumer codes of conduct concluded that continued self-regulation, rather than legislation, coupled with a clear, structured advocacy route for consumers was the preferred way forward. Chris Mason, managing director at Motor Codes, believes that Motor Codes is well-placed to provide a solid support mechanism for motorists:“Having gathered feedback from tens of thousands of motorists through satisfaction surveys and significantly reduced consumer complaint volumes through the inception of an independent advice service to support that offered by Citizens Advice, Motor Codes has shown the value to consumers of effective self-regulation.“Motor Codes already has strong a working relationship with Trading Standards, with Ron Gainsford OBE, TSI chief executive, chairing our compliance panel. We look forward to working with TSI enhancing the current consumer codes model and will continue to offer support to Citizens Advice through our established advice and conciliation service.”Motor Codes operates OFT-approved codes of practice under the current Consumer Code Approval Scheme for new car sales and service and repair and its network numbers almost 7,000 subscribing garages nationwide. Its advice line currently handles around 10,000 calls per year; this advocacy service resulting in just a 7% requirement for formal conciliation cases from all contacts.

Stacie Pridden was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension in 2002Credit:Adam Gray/South West News Service On her blog – Life is Worth The Fight – she took her readers through the ups and downs of her illness. But she finally underwent her organ transplant at Papworth Hospital in Cambridge in May 2015.Her body has accepted the heart well. “Everyone knows when they have a transplant that they will eventually go into some form of rejection,” she said.”I kind of hoped I would reach the five-year average but unfortunately I was one of the unlucky people that went into rejection sooner.”I think my family find it hard watching me go through it again because this time I’m a lot iller than I was the first time and they’re having to do a lot more for me.” I think my family find it hard watching me go through it again because this time I’m a lot iller than I was the first timeStacie Pridden A LOT of pain today.

It feels a lot more urgent this time.”A double lung transplant is even rarer the second time around. I believe it has only been done twice in the world.”Nine out of ten people can’t go back on the waiting list for various reasons.”I’m just extremely lucky that I’m still young and that my drugs haven’t had time to destroy my other organs yet.”I’m still regular old me, I’m just very ill again and I’m using a wheelchair again and I can’t really walk very far.”General day-to-day stuff is very hard for me yet again.

However, she is at the back of the queue for a donor and a “transplant on top of a transplant” operation has only been carried out twice in the world.She said: “Whereas the first time around I had 20 years of deteriorating, this time I had six weeks to deal with it. An inspirational blogger who captivated Twitter as she underwent a double lung and heart transplant has been forced to turn back to the waiting list after her body rejected the lungs.Stacie Pridden, 26, touched people around the world with a blog documenting her journey as she waited for the organs.The risky transplant went ahead in May 2015 and, shortly afterwards, she posted a photo to her Twitter followers saying: “I’m alive guys.” She appeared to recover well until she got an infection and was diagnosed with chronic lung rejection in July last year.Her lung functionality dropped from 80 to 25 per cent in just six weeks and doctors have now told her she will need another double transplant.Miss Pridden, from Pinehurst in Swindon, Wiltshire, is now relying on oxygen and a cocktail of medication to stay alive, and doctors have been unable to tell her how long she may have to live.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery thinks the Premier League has both the best players and teams in world football.The former Sevilla boss spoke to Sky Sports ahead of FIFA’s The Best awards, in which Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, and Mohamed Salah were competing for the top prize.“They are very great teams here and every match, like yesterday against Everton, is very difficult.“[There are] very good players, I think the best players and best teams in the world in this competition, they are here.”Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.The Gunners are on a five-game winning streak and Emery believes the squad is buying into his methods and showcasing that on the field.“The players have shown since the first day of pre-season they are trying every day to do the best,” said Emery.“I think we are improving every day and I am very happy.“But we need also time, we need to continue working, improving. Winning is better I think to find this but I think we are on the way.”
The Board of Clark County Commissioners won’t have to stop praying before public meetings thanks to a U.S. Supreme Court decision.The high court’s 5-4 decision Monday upheld a local government’s authority to start public meetings with a prayer. That’s divine news for the board of commissioners, where religious invocations have commonly kicked off meetings since March 2013.Republican Commissioner David Madore lauded the court’s decision in a post on Facebook.“We need God’s help and wisdom and we ought to thank Him for His help, blessings and protection,” Madore wrote.He directed people to read the court’s majority opinion, saying it was very clear about praying in Jesus’ name.The board is the only local governing body that regularly starts meetings with a prayer. Republican Commissioner Tom Mielke introduced the idea in March 2013 and, at the time, said he wanted to invite a diverse collection of religious leaders to participate.The city of Washougal also briefly discussed the idea last year, but it didn’t go beyond the public discussion stage.Not all of the county’s invocations have been strictly Christian. Prayers have come from a Baha’i chairperson, a Messianic Jewish pastor, a Jewish rabbi and others.The Supreme Court’s decision likely won’t change how meetings begin in Clark County’s largest city.Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt said he’s never been approached by a member of the public or the council about adding prayer to the weekly meeting agenda. City officials don’t make a point of avoiding saying prayers while in their official capacity, he said. For example, last week the city hosted a National Day of Prayer event.But if the idea of a pre-meeting prayer was broached, Leavitt said he wouldn’t support it.
Warangal: The whole gamut of political equations in erstwhile Warangal district seems to be in transition with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is pushing its pawns precisely to seize the political space left in the backdrop of the miserable failure of the Congress and the Telugu Desam.The BJP, which enjoyed a considerable success in Warangal politics in the past, reduced to a pedestrian in last few years. The deplorable vote share it got in the Assembly elections reflect that it’s not a force to reckon with, anymore.

Warangal is no exception with quite a few leaders belonging to Congress and TDP appear to be making a beeline to join the saffron bandwagon. Against this backdrop, the BJP also intensified its activity in the erstwhile Warangal district. The frequency of national and State level leaders participating in the party activities such as membership drive and party meetings has gone up of late. Beginning with party national general secretary P Muralidhar Rao and national secretary N Indrasena Reddy, a host of leaders – former ministers Babu Mohan and Gunde Vijayarama Rao, Telangana State in-charge P Krishna Das, former Rajya Sabha member Rapolu Ananda Bhaskar, former MLAs Yendala Laxminarayana and Chintala Ramachandra Reddy have been to Warangal in last few weeks, indicating party’s hectic efforts to strengthen its base.
